The Fastest Green Car

2009-ultimate-aeroOne problem with green auto engineering is that you have to sacrifice speed to support ecology. No more! Shelby SuperCars is introducing twin three phase AC motors as the powertrain for a 500 hp car that they say will be the fastest in the world. It is expected that Ultimate Aero EV will have run at the rate of 200 mph and more. The 90 kg all-electric scalable powertrain recharges in 10 minutes.

Recently, Shelby SuperCars released the details of their revolutionary All Electric Scalable Powertrain (AESP). AESP will be incorporated into the current Ultimate Aero to create the Ultimate Aero EV.

Shelby SuperCars AESP will provide more linear power (electric motors have 100% torque at 0 RPM) and overall performance than internal combustion cars. The Ultimate Aero EV utilizes a twin motor AESP producing an astounding 1,000 HP and 800 lb-ft of torque enabling it to rocket to 60 mph in a mere 2.5 seconds and reach a top speed of 208 mph. The Ultimate Aero EV will have a range of 150-200 miles on a single charge. The 3-speed automatic transmission will transfers the Ultimate Aero EV’s power to its wheels and achieves electronically controlled shift times of .24 s. The entire AESP is liquid cooled allowing it to run for extended periods of time at peak performance with no overheating issues.

In the last development stages, Shelby SuperCars expects to roll out its first full scale, pre production Ultimate Aero EV in second quarter 2009 and shipping will start as early as the end of this year.

Shelby SuperCars will conduct a live media event at one of America’s superspeedways to prove its claims of “World’s Fastest Production Electric Car.”
